Hello, fellow CAF-ers!
I have two questions regarding the Pauline Liturgy of the Hours (LOTH).
Firstly, I know that the Office of Readings (OOR) may be read the night before the actual day…e.g., one can pray the OOR for Christmas Day during the night of Christmas Eve. My question is, when doing this, should I pray the OOR before or after compline? I read somewhere else in these forums that it should be done before compline, but I’m wondering if there are rubrics or customs governing that.
Secondly, this evening I looked a few months down the road to the Easter Vigil. My red volume of the LOTH says that “the Easter Vigil takes the place of the OOR.” Does that mean there are no texts for the OOR? The rubric goes on to say that “those who do not participate in the Easter Vigil should read…readings with canticles, psalms, and prayers from the Easter Vigil.” I will not be able to attend the Easter Vigil this year, so does that mean I just read the Liturgy of the Word on Saturday evening/early Sunday morning?
Thanks y’all! :blessyou:
